tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC February 4, 2016 11:35pm-12:37am EST
censorship," and music from sir elton john, with cleto and the cletones. and now, you'd better believe it, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i'm jimmy, i'm the host. thank you for watching. thanks for coming. very nice. you know, today is a special birthday, today is facebook's birthday. which just like every other birthday we only know because facebook reminded us. facebook turned 12 years old today. and it's hard to believe it's
learned to hate every single person i know. like most 12-year-olds, facebook spent most of the day on snapchat today. but it's kind of funny. facebook, they've been online kind of celebrating their own birthday. considering the fact that facebook kind of ruined birth daze. before facebook, somebody said happy birthday, it meant something. it meant they remembered. now you spend two seconds typing "happy b-d, man, keep crushing" and you're done. i preferred cake. earlier tonight in new hampshire there was another debate between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. they've already had so many debates they're starting to run out of things to fight about. tonight they sat there quietly like an old married couple at a restaurant. last night in new hampshire, hillary and bernie took part in a town hall event on cnn. one of the people in the crowd asked bernie sanders about the possibility that if he was elected and re-elected, he would be 83 at the end of his second term. and i think what these people
through his high school yearbook. this is bernie sanders' class photo. there he is, he's on the basketball team. i think this is a party. he was very active. and they named him most likely to mall walk. so the point i'm trying to make is bernie sanders has always been 83 years old. and he will always be 83 years old. there's nothing -- there's one curious sighting in the audience last night at the town hall event which was a democratic event. now, this guy right here in the bottom left-hand corner, does he look familiar at all? he does because i'll tell you who that is. that's ted cruz in disguise. scoping out the competition. maybe he's secretly a democrat, i don't know. ted cruz's wife revealed that the way ted alleviates stress is by singing show tunes. for real.
overwhelmed, like right before a debate, he calls her and sings broadway show tunes into the telephone. make no mistake he still believes that marriage is a sacred union between one guy and one doll, okay? this is pretty crazy. some people get very excited about the candidate they support. and there are tattoo shops now in i think vermont and new hampshire giving people free tattoos of bernie sanders. or at least part of him. and if you're a supporter on the other side, you can get a very poorly drawn tattoo of donald trump. which looks more like a bloated martin sheen, really, right? you know, donald trump somehow made the list of nominees for the nobel peace prize. he's on the list, right next to pope francis, which might seem ludicrous because it is. ludicrous. but trump is excited about it. he might be the first person ever to campaign for a nobel prize consideration. >> i'm donald trump.
i'm the most peaceful guy i know. and i know a lot of people. my golf courses are probably the most peaceful places in the world. my hotels? you can hear a pin drop because the maids aren't allowed to talk. when i'm president, i'm going to make the world such a peaceful place, you won't believe it. you're going to be so happy with the peace, you're going to say, thank you, i love it. so do i deserve a prize for peace? i think so. i mean, who are you going to give it to? this guy? look what he drives. what is that, a fiat? believe me, you don't want your nobel paets prize winner driving a loser car like that. it reflects badly on peace. this nobel season it's time to honor the most peaceful man in the world, and maybe history. there's no one more peaceful than me. >> donald trump, donald trump!
the hostile takeover of donald trump! >> donald trump, a man of peace. >> oh no! >> paid for by me. i pay for everything myself. that's how rich i am. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: this is crazy too. here in california somebody bought a lottery ticket that turned out to be worth $63 million. the deadline to cash it in was today. no one showed up to claim it. so now the money goes to california public schools. what a waste, you know? [ laughter ] you just hate to see that happen. the story's especially painful to me because losing a winning lottery ticket is definitely something i would do. for whatever reason the winner didn't show up today. maybe the person wasn't in it for the money, maybe whoever had the ticket understands that
no? the super bowl's on sunday. denver broncos will play the carolina panthers. you know, between the super bowl and this new o.j. simpson show, this has been a very big week for broncos. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the super bowl is not only the most important sporting event of the year, it's also a disappointingly short beyonce concert. beyonce is doing the halftime show with coldplay, lady gaga is going to sing the national anthem which is weird. wonder if francis scott key thought, someday this song will be sung by a woman wearing a dress made of beef. other channels offer counter programming during the game, like the puppy bowl, e! network announced they'll be running a 12-hour "keeping up with the kardashians" marathon on sunday. which i'm not sure how that's different from their schedule every other day of the week. do they even have other shows? one of the more interesting as pecks of the super bowl is all
on. it's not just who will win or lose or the total points or the point spread. you can bet on what are known as propositions or prop bets. they come up with creative ways -- i thought it would be fun to go through some of them. come over here. you don't really have to come anywhere, i'll go over here. one of the most interesting propositions on what they call the board is about cam newton and his touchdown celebration. cam newton is the quarterback for the carolina panthers. if he scores a rushing touchdown, what will he do first? you can bet on that. if he, for instance -- let's get guillermo in here. guillermo? you can help us with this. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: okay, so if cam newton -- this is a real thing you can bet on. are you going to hit me with that football? all right. if he dances on his own, solo,
$180 for every $100 you bet. show us exactly how cam newton would dance, guillermo. >> jimmy: that's the cam newton dance. you keep dancing throughout this. will the panthers players -- keep dancing -- who score the first touchdown give the football to a boy or a girl? sometimes they give the ball to people in the crowd. if it's a boy the odds are 1-2, bet $100, win $200. if a girl, bet $300 to win $200 -- do they assume there are more boys or girls in the stands? this is real, keep dancing, what color will beyonce's foot wear be when she comes onstage for the halftime show? black pays 3-2, gold brown is 5-2, white is 2.75-1, silver/gray is 4.75-1. any other color is 7-1 odds. if she comes out barefoot you get nothing at all.
retirement in the postgame interview? yes is 5-1. no means you get $1,000 to win $100. will peyton manning cry during the postgame interview? yes is 6-1. no is negative 1,500. no, peyton manning will not cry, papa john does not allow peyton manning to cry. this one is morbid, will there be an earthquake during the game? you can bet on this. if you bet yes and there is an earthquake during the game and you survive, you get 10 times your money. and you go to hell. you can stop dancing now, guillermo. thank you. >> guillermo: thank you. >> jimmy: thank you, you did a great job. more americans gamble on the super bowl than any other sporting event. you don't have to wait for sports to gamble. i sent my cousin sal to the mirage hotel in vegas to roam around like some sort of
proposition bets of his own. >> sal: sir, i will give you $20 if you tell me the sex of the next person that walks out of these elevators. >> female. >> sal: female, all right. let's watch and wait. why female? >> just a guess. >> sal: just a guess? are you usually right about these things? >> yeah, usually. >> sal: how much have you won off this game before? >> haven't played this one. >> sal: oh! are you a guy or a girl? you're a guy, right? yeah. sorry, you lost. that's totally a guy. man or woman? >> woman. >> sal: woman, all right. let's see. and it is -- oh! oh, so close! the man wins. so much fun, though, wasn't it? oh my god. i will give you $20 if you tell me exactly how many ice cubes are in that lady's drink right there. >> which lady's? >> sal: right there, sitting alone. >> five.
let's go check. hi, how you doing? how you doing? >> oh no! >> sal: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11 -- like 14, sorry, you lose. thanks, ma'am, appreciate it. >> oh no! >> sal: sir, let me ask you something. i'm going to give you money. come here. i'm going to give you $20 if you can tell me if these two at the end of the bar are married. >> yes. >> sal: they are married? lease find out. come here. come with me. excuse me. excuse me. you guys aren't married, are you? >> [ bleep ]. >> sal: he said you were, what a weirdo. sorry. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we have to take a break. when we come back, arnold schwarzenegger's truck is for
[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome back to the show. jason sudeikis, lionel richie, mousse trick elton john is on the way. do you use uber? [ cheers and applause ] uber unveiled a new logo this week. i don't know if you noticed. it did not go over very well. this was the old uber logo. which is simple, clean, you knew what it stands for, it says "uber" under it. somebody decide they had needed to change it. probably a consultant. these are the kinds of things that consultants do.
unrecognizable symbol. looks like something that would be in the corner of a credit card. here's the question. is it a good idea to drastically redesign your logo when 90% of the people who use your app are too drunk to stand up? [ laughter ] you walk out of a bar, you get out of your phone -- where did my uber -- where the hell did uber go? for those who are too good for uber this might be of interest. a car dealer in texas is using ebay to sell a six-ton truck that was once owned by arnold schwarzenegger. what i would like you to do is i would like you to really do this close your eyes right now. everybody close your eyes. and try to imagine what arnold schwarzenegger's truck might look like. okay? you have it in mind? okay. now open your eyes. that was exactly it, right?
the truck is called unimog, they're asking like $350,000 for the truck. it's interesting. when arnold first decided to sell this truck, his wife said, why don't you give it to the housekeeper? clearly he misunderstood what she meant. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: they're no longer married. anyway. there are six daze left in the auction. and if the ebay ad isn't enough to entice you, maybe this one will be. >> do you want to buy a car? yes, you want to buy my car! it's not a hummer, it's not a tumor, it's a un ichltimog! it has a body made of melted dumbbells, a turbo charged engine, radiator, carb yater, terminator, speedometer, odometer, predator, bennett! it doesn't use gas, it runs on testosterone, arrgh! jingle all the way to texas
buy today and i'll put danny devito in the glove compartment. with wings. we're twins! you son of a bitch. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: if it comes with a danny devito, i'll buy it. all right, one more thing before we forge ahead with tonight's program. it's thursday night which means it's time to bleep and blur the big television moments of the week whether they like it or not. "this week in unnecessary censorship." >> do you feel you'd do better when you're [ bleep ]ing from behind? >> well, the intensity of the experience -- >> [ bleep ] you. [ bleep ] you. >> that was a [ bleep ]ed up senator marco rubio. >> everybody needs a workout. we wanted to show you -- oh, [ bleep ], i'm one story ahead, let's go back. >> eventually there will be a much smaller republican field? >> you'd think so. there's not enough hard [ bleep ] to go around. >> first thing i want to say is
don't hear off thenten enough, and that is [ bleep ] you. >> did you hear the president is taking a little [ bleep ] up the [ bleep ]? >> [ bleep ] you. >> oh. no, [ bleep ] you, seriously. >> what these other countries are doing to us, they're just [ bleep ]ing our [ bleep ]. i've had it with them. >> i want the title so bad, the wwo world heavyweight championship so bad, i'm going to [ bleep ] my own brother for it. and i'm going to [ bleep ] you for it. >> i can't wait to eat [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: tonight on the show, music from elton john, lionel richie is here, be right back with jason sudeikis!

"the chancellor would like to
jesse owens goes up to meet hitler and hitler bounced, he split, and goebels delivers the line. he had to leave. hitler couldn't shake the winner's hand because of "traffic." such bs. they shot that scene in the actual place where he got blown off. >> jimmy: that's crazy. >> we had to rebuild -- we didn't have to. for realism we rebuilt the box that hitler was in the stadium that they had many years ago circumcised from the stadium. >> jimmy: the luxury box. >> his litigation are you box. we rebuilt it. the production rebuilt it. the stadium's open, they play soccer matches there. tourists and locals were kind of like, people working there, what's going on? is there something we should know about? why are we rebuilding hitler's luxury box? is trump campaigning in merlin? berlin?

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: bob's no dummy. >> jimmy: you're also going to have a residency in las vegas. the first time i saw you in concert i was in high school in las vegas. and i bought tickets. i was excited. you were at caesar's palace at the time. and i thought, oh, yeah i'll get a girl to go with me to the concert. and i did get a girl. that girl turned out to be my mother. because i couldn't get -- >> you took your mother? >> jimmy: i took my mother. >> i was going to say, oh, who came out to be your wife? but your mother. >> jimmy: even closer than a wife in a way. >> here's what i want to do. since that's your home and i know you're a triple threat when it come toth knowing more of my career -- >> jimmy: i know a lot about you.
when i'm there for the residency, come onstage and sing your favorite song. >> jimmy: i would love to.
